Green Cheek (or larger beaks) food dishes

What do you use as food dishes? I have stainless for all of my birds. Today I noticed Lily playing with one of her dishes and when I took it out to wash tonight, it was dented and split down the side. What do large parrot owners do? Do you think ceramic would be better? meh. I thought buying the more expensive stainless dishes would be best. I never dreamed she would be able to destroy it.

I guess I should appreciate how softly she bites my fingers and ears. Haha *sigh*

For seeds and pellets I use stainless in my tiel cage, my green cheek has hard plastic lock crock dishes, my budgies and p'let just have regular plastic dishes and for fresh foods the budgies have stainless and the rest have glass.

For larger birds I would maybe stick with the metal... just make sure that they are ones that are actually made for larger birds, and that they aren't just bigger, ha.

Maybe your dish was just defective which is why she was able to break it so easily?

I can't see ceramic dishes working so well with larger birds, especially since Macaws and such eat clay in the wild, lol.
